As soon as spring arrives it seems more appealing to get into the garden to pull weeds, dig garden beds and plant new things.
My garden is looking much better already. Garlic is doing well (planted last autumn) and onions are starting to look promising after a late planting. The first crop of broccoli is almost ready and we’ve already eaten the season’s first asparagus.
Throughout winter we’ve been able to pick self-sown lettuce as needed, and it is now taking over a large part of one garden bed.
New plantings include capsicum, chilli, zucchini and Lebanese cucumber. I’ve also sown corn, carrots, beetroot and butternut pumpkin.
So far a good year seems to be ahead.
